Examination of the male genital tract is essential in the diagnosis of sexually transmitted infections and for the differential diagnosis of such conditions. There are a number of different approaches that can be taken to conducting such an examination, but the main objective is to examine all the relevant anatomy. Sexually transmitted infections commonly affect other parts of the body, and examination of other systems/anatomy in addition to the male genital tract may be required (Barkauskas et al., 2002), for example rectal examination; these are discussed in other chapters.
